of people in florida care about immigration issue. both campaigns have to ten to execute. governor romney has to explain a little more his economic policies. i think the president obviously had a bad night. he will recover. he is a smart guy. beating an incumbent president is never easy but you now basically have a credible alternative. the millions of dollars in negative advertising that the obama campaign has run got diminished the other night by the performance of mitt romney. >> shannon: i want to ask you both how the impact of early voting will play out. a lot of places you can vote before the first debate was even held. there is still a lot to happen in the next 30 days, juan. how much do you think the early voighting issue could benefit or hurt either candidate? >> depends on which state we are talking about. helps a lot i think with people who are clearly of a mind to vote for one candidate or another. i think that is why they are anxious to do it. and then, of course, there is the whole issue of voter suppression and a lot has to do with making it more difficult to vote in the im
and governor romney to make their cases to voters before election day. it has been almost a week and both sides are still trying to clarify things that were said at last week's debate and tweak some strategy as they move on to the next one. i'm shannon bream. hour number two of america's news headquarters live from the nation's capital starts right now. >>> we begin with news on the unemployment rate. down to the lowest number since president obama took office. his campaign says that proves the president's policies are working. republicans argue the numbers are down because people are just giving up. doug mcelway with details of the latest disagreement. doug? >> the controversy surrounding the release of the september unemployment numbers continues to it swirl after one of america's most respected ceos took to twin citieser to find up off this tweet.

and governor romney are both holed up and hunkered done, getting ready for tuesday's big dae bait. their surrogates and spokespeople are out in full force, putting forth their views on the tightening polls. >> as i've said even when the polls were wildly positive for us, that these public polls are all over the place. and the reality of the race on the ground is that we're ahead, it's a little bit narrower than it was before the last debate. but we feel good about where we are and we've got a great ground game going. >> i think the race is very close. i think the wind is at governor romney's back and there's momentum you can see on the trail, you can see it in the data. but the country is pretty evenly divide and we've always felt this was going to be a close election. a close race. i knew that when we were behind in the polls, i know it now that we're ahead in the polls, but i believe that momentum is clearly on governor romney's side. >> look at how close this has become at the national level. a new gallup poll of registered voters gives the president a slim two-point edge. but
is four more weeks all right? we are getting ready for a change. both romney and president barack obama now have to get ready for debate no. 2 that happens this coming tuesday in new york it will take the form of a town hall meeting citizens in the audience will ask questions of the candidates on both foreign and domestic issues. 14 year-old was shot in head and neck putshe was targeted for writing a blogger about the brutal taliban regime in pakistan authorities have identified the two men but they are still searching for them they also rounded up about 70 people and took them into custody in the meantime she is on a conscious and on a ventilator but her blood pressure and heart beat our normal doctors say the next 48 hours are critical united states is poised to hit back aggressively leon panetta of warning about cyber threat saying it could be as destructive as a terror attack in 911 several security experts see bigger prince but panetta didn't put blame on the country he did say that i ran along with russia and china has advanced cyber capabilities he also said that intruders have i
. obama would like to have spending end up at 23%. romney and ryan both want it down at 20%. so there's a clear difference, and they all agree on where it should go. what gets interesting is as you dig into the detail of what gets cut, and you'll see some very, i think, fascinating differences among these guys. so on social security, as you heard president obama say in the last debate, the three guys are actually in the same place. they want to spend the same amount on social security in the next ten years. when you get to medicare, romney and ryan are in the same place, but romney actually a as you also heard him say, wants to repeal the $716 billion. it's actually $900 billion of cuts. he would spend more on medicare than ryan or obama. and then you have obamacare. >> let me ask you really quickly. if anybody has heard, let me know. has mitt romney said what he wants to do with the $716 billion? >> essentially it would be used to get his spending down to that 20% level because you're going to see in a minute, he has a bunch of other places he wants to spend money. >> spend the $716
. >> reporter: with president obama and mitt romney both in ohio today, the focus is likely to shift back to the economy. rob and paula, back to you. >> thanks a lot, karen. >>> this thursday, it's the candidates for vice president who will meet face to face, and our own martha raddatz will moderate that debate. abc, of course, will carry it live. it all kicks off at 9:00 p.m. eastern time. they say bind could be feeling the pressure. the president did so poorly. now pressure on joe's shoulders to come out there and kind of maybe put -- you know, spark a fire that the president could not. also interesting, came out yesterday from our pollster at "the washington post" is that the composition of the polls has changed a little bit. that can explain some of the shift in the numbers. both in the gallup and pew poll, self-identified democrats, that number was higher in the predebate polls. self-identified republicans were up in the post-debate polls. so the wind has definitely been at romney's back, that's for sure, but the composition changed and changed numbers as well. and that has maybe cha
trip, surely and we would both be in it. >>gregg: you might have seen governor romney's performance at the first presidential debate but before that happened, did you catch this? >> what does romney have to do? >> romney needs to articulate a plan as to what he is going to do to change america. pat's right, he has to make himself accessible to the american people. beyond that, unless people get a sense that he has a clear alternative vision for the country and specific approaches to get there, he will not succeed. >>gregg: was the romney campaign watching "campaign insiders" that day? more on that ahead. >>heather: october is anti-bullying month and a horrifying case of bullying a young girl allegedly tormented by a grown man. my doctor told me calcium is efficiently absorbed in small continuous amounts. citracal slow release continuously releases calcium plus d with efficient absorption in one daily dose. citracal slow release. olaf's pizza palace gets the most rewards of any small business crit card! pizza!!!!! [ garth ] olaf's small business earns 2% cash back on every purchase,
federal budget deficits. what governor romney has done i think is make it easier to debate on both sides in terms of what are the next steps we need to take as americans to stay engaged and contribute so that this region doesn't become more turbulent and more dangerous. so it become as little bit more acceptable -- politically acceptable perhaps offering the libyans more assistance for their security forces or the president morsi in egypt is willing to stay in positive fashion for us and israel to offer more assistance that. is stone and style of debate i would welcome because i feel that politicians otherwise tend to fear we have to talk about retrenchment and withdrawal given problems we're having back here in the united states. that is not necessarily good for our foreign policy. romney pushed it in the better direction. jon: with our murder of our first ambassador in 30 years, more than 30 years. turbulent and dangerous is appropriate question. jenna: whether or not the tide of is receding. from that standpoint a lot of philosophy is made. a lot of foreign policy is comes whether you
after governor romney promised cuts to unnecessary spending like grants to pbs. today both governor romney and president obama will head to ohio a key battleground state to the campaign. now, where 18 electoral votes are up for grabs, with the election just a month a with now this is going to be very important because ohio is a state that some people believe could make or break victory. cate caugiran, cbs 5. >>> big bird is the star of a new ad for president obama. >> it's me, big bird. >> big, yellow, a menace to our economy. mitt romney knows it's not wall street... >> the obama campaign released this ad just this morning and it pokes more fun at homicide's pledge to cut funding for public television. a pew research survey three weeks ago gave president obama an 8-point lead among likely voters. now romney has taken a 4-point lead in an updated survey. he is excited about his chances of winning next month. >> people wonder why it is i'm so confident we're going to win. i'm confident because i see you here on a day like this. this is unbelievable, thank you so much. >> he campaigne
have serious problems with what mitt romney did and i think both of them would say he just doesn't get it. he doesn't understand the stewardship responsibilities of the president of the nights. his speech, if you think about it, was a speech designed for the 1950s when america was six times larger than the next biggest economy, could do all things in all places. he attributed george marshall in this speech, who was a great man in my view, it was interesting he spent so much time on israel in his speech today but it was george marshall who was -- >> i think he's appealing to the evangelicals on that front. i think it's pure politics. >> what's interesting about the speech is there's a lot of talk about strength and resolve, but there's really nothing showing us what he would do. he kind of implies we'll go to war and we'll do all these things, but he's kind of a chicken hawk in his actual policies, too. what are we going to do about iran? we'll get tough with sanctions. that's what obama is doing. what are we going to do is syria? we're going it try to find those people who we can help
on issues both domestically as well as our international partners around the world. i mean, the speech today by mitt romney about foreign policy was a joke. it has been already panned by so many who actually know what they're talking about. this is the same guy who couldn't even go to the olympics in london and do that right insulting our good friends and our great partner in the uk. so let's talk about the substance of what it takes to run the united states of america, the most powerful country in the world, and not about, you know, style points at a debate. this is a real job here, and you have to be focused and know what in the world you're doing. >> so your criticizing us for criticizing the campaign debate? okay. let's move on. >> i think the american public wants to hear about the candidates. >> i agree with your main point. let's go back, the obama campaign released this ad over the weekend going after romney's plan on taxes. let's watch the campaign ad that was put out. >> this was dishonest. >> i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. >> romney is being dishonest here, too. >> acc
